Nest Thermostat (including Installation) - £239 @ Nest

81
Found 31st Mar
£40 off Nest thermostat including installation so total is £239. Can't find anything cheaper and am looking to upgrade our thermostat.

Anyone found a better deal which includes installation?

This is £40 more expensive than the Hive system on offer and can't see the difference between the two. Anyone have experience with either?

Heat from me! Bought a Nest from Currys/PC world without installation and ended up paying £95 for certified install
I got the Nest for 135 as part of the 20% off on eBay and once watching a few videos I found that I'd rather pay for install than try it myself. Through the local Nest Pro search on their website I was quoted 100 quid from three installers which seems to be the going rate in my area. Fitted it in 35 minutes which is a good hourly rate!!

So 235 for me seperately.

Still happy with what I've paid.

So this is a decent deal from me.

Sinilar to me. £150 for the NEST from Screwfix - £80 for 30 mins work from an installer.

Are you all happy with the Nest? Is it worth having (especially as opposed to your previous option which was a normal timer?)

Can't really comment yet. The installer has only been away for an hour haha.
I love the Nest system - I had it in my old house and in the new house I have Hive - its not a patch n the Nest. When we move again - will be getting the Nest again x

Can't find this on the website. Got a link? And can you get the installation without buying the Nest from them?
heres the link.

It depends how complex your heating system wiring is - for some it looks like a competent diyer could do the job; I’ve just moved in and mine was a bit too much for me so I got a local plumber in - even he was a bit intimidated by my current system! Anyway all sorted and I like it a lot!

Depends on if you need to access the wires inside the boiler as it’s illegal to do this on newer models, the casing (including any access flaps) are sealed and classed as part of the flue system therefore you need to be Gas Safe registered.

We love ours. The Geo fencing built into the NEST is temperamental. Well worth downloading the QuickControl app on iOS - works like a charm with multiple people/phones.

What’s the difference between the geofencing on this app and the nest app? I have both my wife and my own mobiles added to the nest app and it uses my location to set home and away. See image.

I bought the nest unit for £140 on prime day, then an official installer charged £60 to fit. A local electrician wanted £112! Seems I got it installed on the cheaper side.

Multiple times the geofencing on NEST hasnt triggered when we’ve left at different time and vice versa. QuickControl seems to sort this
I'm no spark but was able to fit it fine myself. The instructions are good, and a little perseverance goes a long way. The toughtest part was finding out my setup in the house but other than that a doddle. Obviously make sure you turn off mains before attempting!! (240v at play here!!)
Would they do it if you don't have a thermostat and any connections for it.
I've got 2 thermostats, 1 upstairs and 1 down. Does that need 2 nesty things?
I had inspire home automation thermostat. I replaced it with Nest. I installed them both myself.
I wouldn't say installation is straightforward for either one.

I've had the nest for couple of months now. It is very good functionality and looks wise.

The nest can be placed anywhere in the house as it talks wirelessly - uses wifi. It needs to be connected to a power source.

Turn the auto learning off and set a manual schedule then
Buying the nest was a very good decision for us. Been pleased with it over the last 3 months and wouldn't go back to a normal thermostat now.

Have found it to be very good at doing the things it should do, so personally I like it.

Ate these really any good over a decent 'traditional' thermostat? How long would it take to repay the cost over savings?

Be interested to know in what way.....been thinking of getting one but Hive works out quite a bit cheaper when you have 2 zones and haven’t seen much that makes me think worth buying Nest above Hive Other than reference to learning which doesn’t seem a big feature to me

Nest can adjust the temperature of the water in the central heating circuit up and down dependant on the outside temperature or the amount of heat rise requested saving money and keeping temperature spikes to a minimum.

The Hive cannot do this and is a simple on or off.

This will always work as a thermostat though.

Only if your boiler can have the functionality.

A decent traditional thermostat will cost £120-150 to get installed but for an extra lil bit, this gives you remote ability to turn the heating off. If you are good at turning your heating on and off automatically, then probably little saving. Otherwise, quite a lot.

Well obviously yes.

You will need an Open Therm compatible boiler, many new ones are these days and if your in the market for a replacement boiler make sure you specify one as you’ll save money.

Annoying mine doesn't but then the boiler is about 20 years old and still going strong.
Got mine installed via a Nest pro on their website for £220
We didn’t have a thermostat and only had a 24 hour programmer. So bought one of these for £130 via nPower, searched Google for my boiler and Nest, and found the wiring diagram. Was only five wires for me I think.

Works fine, the geolocation took a couple of weeks to settle in. If I’m at the pub (about two minutes walk away) it doesn’t think I’m out of the house, I think it’s set to half a mile.

if you already have a seven day programmer and thermostat then it’s probably a bit of a novelty. Though if you and your other half are always adjusting the temperature it might make sense.

Since had the house rewired and have a couple of Nest protects too.

My only gripe with the Nest thermostat is that unless you can run two wires from your boiler to the thermostat, you are going to have a USB cable running down your wall to power it. I’m not aware of any internal 5v usb sockets - the only alternative would be to put a mains socket under a floorboard and run a chase up the wall I suppose. Or bury a transformer in the plaster, which I’m not willing to do.

On the above. I believe if you do run the two wires from the heat link, then they’re also used for transmitting data between the heat link and thermostat.
These are not even smart. Get a system that has radiator valves that can bring the boiler on for real smart heating. Drayton Wiser, Tado and Evohome come to mind.

Is it a combi? If so your doing well although I expect you’ve had various parts replaced over the years, if it’s a system boiler then I would expect it still to be working that long.

Replacing a boiler to a condensing type (especially a boiler than can condensate 100% of the time) will pay for it self anyway
I got this with a stand does it have to always be plugged in to work or connected to the boiler getting a new combi fitted ...

This every time
Bought mine on Black Friday and had a local heating company come in to fit it for £70. It worked like an absolute dream for weeks, but then I started to get some issues...

The hot water schedule started playing up, when it's set to say 6pm to 7pm, it fails to turn the water on and says it's off until 7pm. When 7pm rolls round, it'll say it's off until 8pm, and so on... I have to use the boost option to get the water heated.

Nest weren't able to help, neither were the installers, but then it started working again, though currently it's not working. However, heating scheduling has always remained fine. Has anyone experienced this or is it just me?

Yes, I just had a timer with TRVs. Nest has made it easier to control my heating and saved me a few quid on the odd occasion I’m not home by not heating my house. It’s also connected to my Hue lights and can turn them on/off based on me being home/away. It’s a great little piece of kit if you like these new smart tech gadgets
